Ochilview Park in Stenhousemuir was the venue for the Sunday version of the Central Region finals. The first of the 3 Sunday games was contested between Hamilton Accies BC and Westerton United at Under 14’s.
Straight from the kick off them aimed to put pressure on the Westerton back line. A long ball forward caused a problem for the Westerton defence, forcing them to concede the corner. The resulting corner was initially won in the air by Accies number 3 Sam Murdoch, and then Matthew McAlpine the Westerton keeper got a hand to the clearance, but it fell to Murdoch and he knocked the ball into the empty net. Accies 1-0 to the good.
Westerton looked to hit back straight away from their kick off. The dancing feet of Louis Black managed to work him into the box, but Stephen Mooney was out quickly to smother. An Accies free kick from 30 yards was swung into the back post, the header from Dylan Henry was goal bound, but for a superb save from McAlpine to push the ball away for a corner.
Not long after though, Accies doubled their lead. A ball into the box wide from the left hand side met the head of centre half Sam Murdoch, and he bulleted his header into the roof of the net. A fantastic header! 2-0 Accies.
Accies then came close to making it 3-0. Lewis Campbell played a neat ball inside to Henry on the edge of the penalty area. The striker had his back to goal, but he managed to turn Greg Martin, and he fired a shot towards goal, but it shaved the outside of the post.
Westerton did pull a goal back 25 minutes into the game. Louis Black creating the goal for himself with his magical quick feet on the edge of the box. He managed to shake off the presence of Murdoch, and then Martin Smith in order to finish into the bottom corner. 2-1 now and game on.
Only a few minutes later though, Accies restored their 2 goal advantage. A loose ball in the Westerton penalty area was pounced on by little Stephen Coupland, who prodded the ball into the bottom corner. As the dark clouds started to appear above, it was raining goals at Ochilview!
